As has been the case recently, a number of new releases have either diverged from the normal Wednesday night release schedule or otherwise just slipped under the radar. You can check out our original Out Now post from Wednesday night, which is chock full of great new games, but here's a supplemental list of some interesting-looking titles that popped up since then.

  • pillzhereish

    With GTA SA that came out two days ago, every new release seems dull

    • Echoen

      Which is why people miss out on great stuff by indies like Starborn Anarkist.

      Yes, I plugged it.

      • Pete Osborne

        Seconded. Starborn Anarkist is a beautiful game. One of the best of the year, let alone the week

  • Pete Osborne

    Wahey, could always put up with more than one of these a week! Not much I can add but I means I can go into more detail on each game:

    Ninja Hero Cats (Free) [U] - My other pick of the week (originally Fiz). Looks like Bastion, plays like Pikmin and Quadropus Revenge's love child. Absolutely free with only a banner which can be IAPed away.
    Poppy Kart (Free/99c IAP unlock) [U] - Plays and looks just like Super Mario Kart on the SNES. Throw in a mission mode and loads of levels and it's a lot better than the AppStore page suggests!
    Man at Arms TD (£2.99) [iPad] - Tower defence and CCG combo with some nice aesthetic and gameplay touches.
    Pixpendables (69p/99c) [U] - Endless pixel runner with gunplay, challenges, unlockable characters and zombies.
    Detentionaire: Class President (Free) [U] - Line drawing-ish stealth game based on a cartoon I've never heard of, I'm obviously getting old. Actually plays pretty nicely and looked good too.
    Casualty Commander (Free) [U] - Minigame collection mixed with very light hospital management. Seems to be edutainment but plays harmlessly enough.
    Beat the Boss (Free, 69p/99c for 17+) [U] - Virtual pet/stress toy with a masochistic streak. Third in a popular series.
    7 Little Words Adventures (£1.49/$1.99) [U] - Expanded version of the enjoyable word game. Family friendly but still taxing, original version free to trial.

    Not to mention free versions of Cut the Rope: Time Travels and Pathogen. Finally I hugely recommend Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective which has it's All Chapters unlock reduced from £6.99 down to 69p/99c for a limited time.

    • Pete Osborne

      Would also like to add Memory House (Free) [U] to the list. Very nice memory puzzle game with seemingly no IAPs, ads or anything like that. Really polished and a nice storyline to go along with the gameplay. Always good to support devs like that!

    • jontas

      Thanks for posting this, would've definitely missed some of these otherwise.

  • Taclys

    Star Trek? Tekkin? What madness is this? Interesting!

  • fragfish

    Castle Raid 2!!! I loved the first game but it was a bit short, seems the devs listened

  • the fish

    I bought Fiz a couple of days ago and can't stop playing. Best simulation/management game of the year.
